how to make black plastic trim/moulding black again

Hi,

The door handles and black plastic lower body moulding on my 98 slk has faded so badly that it looks grey. What product would you suggest to make them black again?

thanks,

Steve

Renew black plastic trim color


I have had great luck with product 2000, kind of a high tech armor-all,it comes in a bright day glow green bottle.It contains some polymer that is very tough,if you spray it on your tires , the over spray will seal the cement of the driveway for a few months were it looks dry,even when wet /rain /car washing, best sprayed in a - parking lot - car wash . You can spray it into a small rag for trim & use inside the car. Also doubles as a screen & shower door roller lube - plastic drawer slides. Most any auto parts store has it,but read the bottle ,they make wax-window cleaner- don't grab the wrong bottle.

I would advise that you spray it on a cloth and wipe the affected plastic as opposed to spraying directly on, it's a bit serious!!
